What does it mean to live well? Does it mean you're sitting on piles of money, eating bon bons during the day, and living the high life? Not to me. Living well means enjoying life each and every day for what it is. It's taking the time to appreciate the little things. Coming home to a loving husband and happy child every day, thanking God each day for the blessings in your life, and having the support of wonderful friends and family is what it's all about.
Ryan and I are so blessed to have a child to love. Caleb has been such a joy since the moment he was born. We have had the opportunity to grow as a family and become grateful for the amazing moments in our lives. Caleb is such a wonderful gift to us both and I am so proud to be his mommy. I would go through the difficult pregnancy and painful C-Section all over again because he was worth every second of suffering! One day when he's all grown, I will explain it to him!
I live well knowing that I have done everything I can to be understanding, accomodating, patient, and compassionate with people around me. I can sleep at night knowing that I have tried my best at everything I do in life. I love with all of my heart. I work hard and am extremely ambitious. I am loyal to the people I love. I pray to the Lord with all of my being at the end of every day. This is living well.
I refuse to let anyone compromise my happiness and joy in life. At the end of the day, I will always have my family to come home to and a gracious God to worship and that is so much more than enough for me! Anything that happens outside of that is trivial. There is a joy in my heart that no one on this Earth can crush as hard as they might try. I believe when it's all said and done, good will always win.
